The minor or undergraduate certificate in Clinical Laboratory Sciences is appropriate for students with a major in the basic or life sciences who have a professional career interest in the medical laboratory field. The minor or certificate provides students with the opportunity to be eligible for national board and state licensing exams in the individual CLS disciplines. To minor (or obtain a certificate) in CLS, students must complete one or more of the following CLS discipline course sets within the upper-division CLS program curriculum, culminating in a supervised training practicum in a licensed clinical laboratory setting. Please note that prerequisite science courses apply to be eligible for the CLS courses. Students must apply for the minor or certificate and meet the same eligibility requirements as students fully admitted into the CLS program due to accreditation requirements for clinical training.
